Fill the oil filter as much as possible , allowing the oil to seep through the filter media, and then prime the engine as noted by a-fast-crown-vic above. The priming operation pushes oil through all rod and main bearings along with pushing it through the oil galleys of the heads and up to the lash adjusters. The best place to do it is at the oil filter casting, either where the oil pressure sensor threads in or by pulling the hex cap plug off and screwing in a pipe thread fitting you can buy from the hardware store. You will have to drain some oil out of the engine to allow room for the oil you will add for the priming. Take your time while priming. You are forcing oil up through the engine. You can use a pump style garden sprayer from Lowes or Home Depot. When you do it, you will hear the oil moving through the block and eventuall filling up the galleys in the heads.
Best not to try to start it again until you prime it.
Let us know how it goes.
